friendly hostel receptionists. very hard to find the hostel though. beds were good. floors were a bit slimy as thy must of been washed with detergent and not wiped over with water. showers were good. big collection of DVDs and the kitchen had alot to use in it. the fridge had too much stuff in it though and could probably do with a clean out. good location ad right near metro and exito supermarket.

This hostel has a good "vibe" going on, because of the people that work there ,young nice and helpful, the place is owned by an Israeli man,also very nice , he helped us a lot by explaining the city.
The hostel has a kitchen, so you can cook there, (saving a lot of money), there is a big dining table, A space with sofas and a TV with DVD, there is also a chill out zone with Wifi (Wifi is in the whole hostel,good reception) and Ping pong table . Laundry service s available.
This place is really good for a group of friends (dorms) or a single traveler because there are always people hanging out in the shared spaces,which makes it easy to make new friends.
The down side is that the rooms don't have outer windows to the street (less noise thou) ,all the rooms have windows to the inside. The mattresses are very hard! like sleeping on a wooden block...but we were willing to get used to that ,because of the low price and the good atmosphere.
The location is great,its close to "Zona Rosa"-5 min walk, to the main street for money change,super markets and so on, but not too close for being bothered by the noise.

Just a 5 minute walk from Poblado metro station the hostel was a decent place for a couple of nights in a 20000 dorm bed. Despite (or maybe because of) the sign saying no ping pong after 11pm or music after 2am we slept well. I never did work out who the owners were but the place was kept clean and the atmosphere was relaxed.
If you arrive in Terminal Sud the Tourist Info desk is really helpful and will phone hostels for you. The 305 bus just outside will take you right to Parque Poblado.

Situated in a great location in Poblado close to the Metro, supermarket and the nightlife of the district. It's fairly basic with a good kitchen, cosy lounge area and a ping pong table, and the staff are helpful and very friendly. It's more of a chilled out hostel but close enough to the bars and restaurants to go out at night. I would definately stay here again and recommend it to others.

Room Tip: I stayed in the 8 bed dorm room which was fine. There was not much noise at night time.
